Keeping It Real
Round numbers are always false
Our account does not rob mathematicians of their science, by disproving the actual existence of the infinite in the direction of increase, in the sense of the untraceable. In point of fact they do not need the infinite and do not use it. They postula
The so-called Pythagoreans, who were the first to take up mathematics, not only advanced this subject, but saturated with it, they fancied that the principles of mathematics were the principles of all things.
It is the perennial youthfulness of mathematics itself which marks it off with a disconcerting immortality from the other sciences
Eric Temple Bell
The transfinite numbers are in a certain sense themselves new irrationalities and in fact in my opinion the best method of defining the finite irrational numbers is wholly disimilar to, and I might even say in priciple the same as, my method described above of introducing trasfinite numbers. One can say unconditionally: the transfinite numbers stand or fall with the finite irrational numbers; they are like each other in their innermost being; for the former like the latter are definite delimited forms or modifications of the actual infinite.
As a graduate of the Zsa Zsa Gabor School of Creative mathematics, I honestly do not know how old I am

If I were again beginning my studies, I would follow the advice of Plato and start with mathematics.
Mathematicians, who are only mathematicians, have exact minds, provided all things are explained to them by means of definitions and axioms; otherwise they are inaccurate and insufferable, for they are only right when the principles are quite clear
A formal manipulator in mathematics often experiences the discomforting feeling that his pencil surpasses him in intelligence
What would life be without arithmetic, but a scene of horrors?
But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain.
Mathematics is the queen of sciences and arithmetic is the queen of mathematics
Carl Friedrich Gauss
Mathematics are well and good but nature keeps dragging us around by the nose.
One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly disco
The study of mathematics, like the Nile, begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence
Charles Caleb Colton
